Diagnostic experiences of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

Visser SN, Zablotsky B, Holbrook JR, et al.; 2015:1-7.

This survey of parents of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder examined how this diagnosis was established. There was variation in the diagnostic process, including testing methods and types of practitioners involved (primary care physician, psychologist, psychiatrist). These results demonstrate the inherent challenge of diagnosing a heterogeneous condition even when diagnostic guidelines and criteria exist.
